, the fact that katon can keep saying all these names of brown people who are governors on the republican party makes -- a certain part of it is a little surprising, given what you were saying about the new majorities, that we can't name the people who will inherit the obama and clinton legacy. >> on the one hand, you have this sort of star power, but it's a somewhat dated grouping of folks, you know? the clintons, they're incredible, they have all this star power. hillary, who knows what's going to happen, she'll probably run. but we don't have, yeah, what is that next generation of folks, i think is an interesting question. but the other thing is, the republican party right now, in terms of surrogates, whoever they bring up is divisive. because they're having a fight in the party, whoever shows up there is going to be an argument about -- it's not going to mobilize the entire base. it's going to cause one segment to go, oh, that's exciting, and one segment to go, i hate that job. >> and particularly in virginia, to bring mr. ted shutdown cruz in to stump for you seems like a bad idea. >
